Bass Training And First Tournement

Recommended Posts

hello all, i live in CA, never before did a bass fishing , and would like to learn, practice, and participate in my first amateur tournament. 

can you please recommend the first steps in terms of which club membership i need, any classes, practical training you recommend, how to enroll into a tournament?

 

any other useful information that you could share that will help a novice fisherman like myself -- will be much appreciated! 

 

thanks a lot!

The first thing I would do is to join a local club. I'd sit in on a few different club's meetings and pick a club that "feels' right to you. Typically, a club will have a tourney once a month and this is a great way to spend the day with a different person each month and pick their brain for info. Go in as a non-boater so you can just ride along and observe. You will be able to tell who knows what and those are the people you want to pay attention to.

This^^  and read, read some more, read what you read again.  Watch all the videos you can!  Start off learning about 5 techniques.  Learn them! Be efficient!  Then you can pick up more techniques.  Good luck in your adventure.  Just remember, it is a life long journey.  No reason to sprint through it!

I would recommend that you try to find someone local ...to go out fishing with you ,and learn about rods, reels, lines, lures ,knots and finding fish....Stick with a few basic lures til you build some confidence and shorten the learning curve.

Read Bass Fishing Resource's articles & watch the bassresource videos on youtube!

Just search for Bass clubs on line in your local area.  I'm in Southern Ca and  just took up Bass fishing this year. I went to two local clubs before deciding which one to join and I can tell you that I learn something at each meeting and each tournament.  Joining a club is the best advice because watching all the you tube videos doesn't match up to seeing it up close and personal.
